Hi Daddy,

From 5 years old to 23… so much that you missed. I miss you. I love you. I am happy, I know that is what you want for me. I am doing everything you and mom wanted me to do. Mom, Sara and Amanda did a great job raising me- it took all of them. 😊 Mom tells me constantly how much I remind her of you, I like that. They say a picture is worth a 1,000 words so I thought I would share pictures instead of words…

I Love You and Miss you,
